What was the toughest thing you had to do this season?
I think it was consistently skating the line between the comic and the tragic, fueled by a deep self-loathing and desperation to be seen.
If you could play any other role on any other show, what would it be?
There is a bunch! Wouldn’t mind playing someone like the King Slayer on ["Game of Thrones"], but I would love to play multiple characters like Tatiana Maslany plays on “Orphan Black.”
Is this the Golden Age of Television?
I believe it is. The writing in TV today can be so incredibly rich and layered. There are networks and executives who are willing to take risks on vastly different material, and as an actor, there are some really juicy roles to sink your teeth into.

Actor Dash Mihok first attracted Hollywood’s attention in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 take of “Romeo + Juliet.” Since then he’s had roles in several major films — “The Day After Tomorrow,” “The Thin Red Line” and the award-winning “Silver Linings Playbook” — and a long list of television shows, including “Felicity,” “Law & Order” and “The Good Wife.” Mihok currently stars on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” as Ray’s brother Bunchy.
It’s an impressive career for anyone trying to break into show business, but Mihok makes it more impressive with his revelation: He was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome at age 6. CNN spoke with Mihok in Lakeland, Florida, where he was speaking out against bullying at schools in connection with Jaylen’s Challenge. The following is an excerpt of that interview:
Showtime has renewed rookie drama Ray Donovan for a second season.
“Ray Donovan is on track to be our biggest Season 1 show ever,” said network president David Nevins in a statement. “[Series creator] Ann Biderman and the extraordinarily talented creative team, coupled with the brilliant ensemble cast led by Liev Schreiber, have produced one of the hottest new dramas of the year. We are proud and excited to pick up another season.”
The series, which stars Schreiber as a Hollywood fixer, made history last month as Showtime’s best series launch to date. Even more impressive, the show grew 15 percent in its second week to 2.2 million viewers.
